About the UWCA

The Utah Weed Control Association, or UWCA, was organized in 1986. It was formed in order to bring weed control issues into a greater light and to provide a forum to address ways to improve weed control in the state. The UWCA is comprised of Utah's best weed control professionals striving to implement the best weed management practices available with today's technology.

With the invasion and rapid spread of noxious and invasive weeds in United States, it's more important than ever to have trained and dedicated professionals and an informed public interested in and capable of controlling this serious threat to our society and environment.

We hope that your visit here will be informative and educational. Thank you for your interest in weed control
